Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Particle emitter won't spawn at impact point

So a brief description of what i'm doing. I have a blueprint called LaserBeam and thats the projectile that fires out of two mount points on my space ship, that part works fine. When LaserBeam collides with something, its supposed to spawn a particle emitter called P_Explosion(the default explosion particle provided by Epic). It does that, except it's supposed to spawn at the impact point. It could be because i'm misunderstanding what the impact point is, but wouldn't that be where it landed on the static mesh? If so, then it is not spawning at the impact point, and instead spawning at the center of the ship where the LaserBeam(Self) component is. Here's a video of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6yZbxkKH1Q

Being able to see your hit blueprint flow would help a lot. But, just as a tip, use Location instead of Impact point and see if it works better.
